Thread: Running VirtualBox in Tumbleweed

  1. #1

    Default Running VirtualBox in Tumbleweed

    Is there a reason why I'm now getting this error:

    code:
    **********

    ken@pc1:~> VirtualBox
    Qt FATAL: FATAL: The application binary appears to be running setuid,
    this is a security hole.
    Aborted
    ken@pc1:~>

    **********

    I didn't get this error last week. It looks like someone didn't
    thoroughly think through that some programs still need to be setsuid in
    order to function.

    Running VirtualBox 6.0.2
    Tumbleweed 20190201

    I guess your virtualbox is not from the official tumbleweed repo and this might be the problem.
    VB 6 is not building in tumbleweed at the moment, no issues with VB 5.2.22

    I only use the download from virtualbox.org and rarely have issues. I
    updated tumbleweed and VB (6.0.4) yesterday and the problem has been
    resolved.

    In Leap 15.0 it was enough to reinstall VirtualBox package and it is running again. (VirtualBox used from virtualbox.org)

    The same **** has happened.
    Yep, reinstallation of package can solve this.
    The second way to solve this is permissions correction in /usr/lib/virtualbox
    Here is the diff of bad and normal permissions:
    Code:
    # diff VBerr VBnoerr 
    41c41
    < -rwsr-x--- 1 root vboxusers 154104 VBoxHeadless
    ---
    > -r-s--x--x 1 root root 154104 VBoxHeadless

    < -rwsr-x--- 1 root vboxusers 23120 VBoxNetAdpCtl
    < -rwsr-x--- 1 root vboxusers 154096 VBoxNetDHCP

    I suspect that not only do you have Oracle Virtualbox installed (from the Oracle website), you probably also have Virtualbox installed from the openSUSE repositories, to me that is the only way dup can and would have any effect on your install
